Subject: Fall '77
The second half of 1977 doesn't get as much attention as the first half, for good reason I suppose. The crackling, electric, psychedelic heat of the spring dissipated a bit when the boys took their long summer break between 06/09 and 09/28 (with the exception of Englishtown 09/03 of course). Jerry carried the flame during the JGB shows he played during the interim, but from the first day of the fall tour, Jerry put down the aluminum Travis Bean and picked up an update Wolf, giving him a decidedly more wooden tone. These shows are more laid back, but every bit as good, in my option. Great sound on this tape, and unique performances of Eyes and St. Stephen. OMSN stands out as well.

Subject: Best I ever heard
This was the best show I ever attended. Jerry and Donna were walking around campus before the show looking happy and content.

The story I heard (from someone in the student association) was that the tickets were set at $12.50. The Dead came into town and said that they would not play at that price but would be happy to play if the ticket prices were lowered to $7.50. The box office closed (this was the day before) and reopened the day of the show with new tickets.

I was in the top row of the bleachers...as far away from the stage as possible. They were rocking so hard that I reached up to make sure I could hang on to the rafters in case the bleachers collapsed.

At the beginning of every set I heard from then on--hundreds--I would yell out "Might As Well!" Never heard it again.

Talked with Dick years later and suggested this show. He told me later that he couldn't find recording that was good enough to release.

I once had an opportunity to ask Phil what was going on in 1977. He knew just what I was asking. He said he didn't know why, but agreed that 1977 had the best shows.

By the way, the venue was the Evans Fieldhouse.
